Mantola R401 (1937)

Mantola R401 (1937)

This beautiful set seldom shows up for sale, as it is fairly rare. The colorful backlit dial stands out, and it's simply a beautiful, very collectible set. The chassis is a clean example and has had a complete electronic restoration. All filter caps and paper caps were replaced, along with out of tolerance resistors,etc. The cabinet was refinished in a lacquer finish using correct toners, with multiple coats, hand-rubbed just as it was in 1937. This set plays loud and clear on both BC and SW bands, a very good performer. This set would set off any collection or just by itself in the parlor. 18-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H x 9"D. $525.00. (0620211)

 

Emerson AM-187 "Pagoda" (1937)

Emerson AM-187 "Pagoda" (1937)

Here is one of the most unusual and seldom seen repwood sets made. These sets were antiqued by hand from the factory; Silver leaf was used as well as traces of red and shadowing. These sets were expensive, as this is the best performing repwood set I've ever owned. Most repwood sets were cheap radios that did not perform well. There isn't much info out there on these as there weren't many made, and very seldom does one come up for sale. The information was given to me by an avid Emerson collector, and a collector that collects nothing but repwood sets. This set still retains its original wood back, with its model number stamped in it. The chassis is clean and rust free and the speaker is flawless. The chassis was electronically restored, cleaning all pots and switches, changing of all filter and paper caps, new cloth line cord, etc. This set has a lot of volume and picks up a lot of stations across the dial. The set has both BC and SW bands. This is a very unique set and I've had it for ten years; the last one I've seen for sale was this one. 14-1/2"W x 9"H x 7"D. $595.00. (0620206)

 

RCA 45EY-26 "Alice in Wonderland" 45rpm Phonograph (1951)

RCA 45EY-26 "Alice in Wonderland" 45rpm Phonograph (1951)

Anyone that grew up in the fifties remembers these little little 45 record players/changers when 45 records were all the rave. Everyone wanted one! This is the rare kids version which was the same as the adult players, except the color scheme, decals, and the kids' version had a metal turntable instead of plastic. The amp has been electronically restore, replacing caps, resistors, etc. The record changer was disassembled, cleaned and lubricated. The idler wheel, cycling cam, rubber motor mounts, rubber bushings under the turntable replaced. The cap assembly was disassembled and cleaned. The platform has been replaced but the cabinet retains its original paint and decals. These Alice in Wonderland versions are scarce, and prized by collectors. These record players are expensive to restore so don't miss out on this one. It plays and sounds great with its two-stage tube amplifier. The cartridge and needle was replaced with a stereo cartridge that was bridged into mono, so you can play stereo 45s as well. You can stack 12 or more 45 records on the spindle at a time. These are beautiful little machines that sound awesome. 10-1/2"W x 5"H x 8-1/2"D (cabinet). $479.00. (0620200)

 

Majestic 371 Cathedral (1933)

Majestic 371 Cathedral (1933)

This little Majestic is a set you don't run across often. This paticular set has its original finish, and all of its paper labels attached in the cabinet. It still has most of the original style frosted Majestic tubes in it. The set still has its original line cord as well. The set has been electronically restored and plays great. The chassis is very clean in this set as well as the speaker, all excellent. If you are looking for an all original set then this is the one. These sets are very desirable and hard to come by. 12-1/2"W x 11-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D. $479.00. (0620117)

 

Zenith 6-D-516

Zenith 6-D-516

This little Bakelite Zenith has been restored inside and out. The cabinet has been professionally repainted back to its original ivory finish. The chassis has been polished and cleaned, and electronically restored, replacing all capacitors and out of tolerance resistors. A new dial face cover has been installed so you can see the beautiful, black dial clearly. The radio has BC only and plays loud and clear. This great prewar set will make a great addition to your collection. $179.00. (0620106)

 

Philco 41-226 (1941)

Philco 41-226 (1941)

Here is one of Philco's rarest and most collectable pre-war sets. The left side is fluted giving the set a very extrodinary Deco look, and made this radio known as "The Sled." The set also has beautiful veneer inlays as well. This radio is sporting its original finish, which is in super condition (better than the pic). The chassis has been electronically restored and is super clean condition. This rare little set has minimal warpage on the plastic grille, which are always warped to some degree on these sets. The radio plays loud and clear on both bands and will make a great addition to any collection. 13-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 6"D. $299.00. (0620073)
